The most sparkly night of the year is upon us, Party Girls! Insert NYE. An evening of random parties that give you an excuse to dress up, a night to reflect on how the heck an entire year has passed by, or just hang out on your couch with your closest friends. Yes, yes, we know NYE can be a little overrated, but we’re not here to be Debbi Downers, k? No matter what you’re doing come Saturday night, dressed up or down you deserve to party a little and this year we’re showing you how to with these ah-mazing (and seriously easy) champagne jello shots. Sound like a disaster because you can’t remember the last time you made jello? Trust us, these are EASY. And you’ll be glad you did it when all your friends are begging you for the recipe!
• 1 ½ Cup Champs (choose whatever kinda bubbly you want, we selected Veuve Cliquot)
• 1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
• 1 Tbsp SUGAR
• 3 Envelopes Gelatin
• ¼ Cup Vodka (again, whatever kind you want, we just had some Belvedere laying in our office freezer)
• Candy Confetti aka Candyfetti from our Yay, You package to garnish and really make em’ pop!
- Combine champagne, lemon juice and sugar in a saucepan. Sprinkle gelatin on top. Let gelatin soften for about two minutes to bloom, then heat mixture over low heat. Stir until gelatin has completely dissolved, about 2-3 minutes, and remove from heat. Stir in remaining 1/4 cup each of champagne and vodka.
- Grease a loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray. Pour mixture into mold and chill for 2 hours, or until firm.
- Invert jello to parchment paper-lined cutting board and slice into squares. Dip each square in sprinkles and serve cold.
How cute are they though?! We just cubed em’ up but it might be fun too to use a cookie cutter and have them in little hearts or fun shapes.
Serve these alongside our Original Disco Drink for the ultimate NYE party night! You can pre-make drinks inside these too that’ll stay cool because they’re insulated (only the best for you, bebs!). If you’re not wanting to add alcohol to yours, you can select a fun flavored soda, we saw Carmel Apple or Prickly Pear at the store recently!
Also, for a little extra something we added confetti, of course, to all our party hats! We just used Thimblepress confetti from our Birthday Beb package and used Elmer's Spray Glue (it's like spray paint) and threw confetti on our NYE essentials!
